Disney Dress-Up Week

This summer, as I wait for my teaching credential program to start in August, I’m working at a tutoring agency.  It’s been a really amazing experience thus far.  My coworkers are wonderful, and the kids are so sweet and fun.

To make it more fun for the kids who have to come during the summer, we’ve been doing different dress up themes for each week.  Dressing up is fun to begin with, and they get to earn extra tokens.

This week’s theme was Disney, so naturally, I had to dress up, too.  I decided to challenge myself to wear a different costume every day, and to do it all with stuff we had around the house.  Here are the results:

Disney Day 1:

Mary Poppins.

Disney Day 2:

Star Wars is Disney now, so...Princess Leia :)

Going classic with Minnie Mouse.  The mouse ears, which I crocheted, are one of the only two items I had to make for the week.

A more obscure choice: The Blue Fairy from Pinocchio.

Why yes, these wings are made from paper plates, staples, scraps of fabric, and two pieces of ribbon I've been saving for years.

Last but NEVER the least, Belle :)  Props if you can tell what book I'm reading.

Five days, five costumes, and tons of fun, all for $0.  It even succeeded in getting a little girl tutoring help.  Her family had been going to the speech therapy place directly above us for years and never realized there was tutoring in the office building.  Yesterday, they were walking up and the little girl said, “Mom, look!  Belle!”  And that’s how they realized that there was a tutoring place there 🙂
